But could Ainsley Maitland-Niles also be heading for the exit door?

Well, there has been talk of a surprise move to Premier League rivals Manchester United as Ole Gunnar Solskjaer looks to add much-needed reinforcements to his squad before the transfer window shuts.

According to Sport1, the deal to take Maitland-Niles from London to Manchester is 80 percent done, and in addition, the report says the transfer could be announced in ‘the next few days.’

However, any move would not be cheap, with the 23-year-old still having three years left on his current contract.

The report in Sport1 says United are prepared to pay around £20million for Maitland-Niles.
